Explain this experience to me.

I have a friend with similar self esteem issues. We are both quite critical of ourselves. I'm a natural skeptic of all things spiritual or otherworldly so I'm wondering what this experience means....

I had a repeating dream in childhood. A little girl walking through a field, picking wild flowers. I know the girl is me. Behind her, I can see there is a horrible black cloud following her. She is completely unaware. It's hard ...

Any recommendations as to how to outright end hallucinations

I’ve been hallucinating almost non-stop for over 400 days. Visual, auditory, tactile, gustatory, even chronoceptive hallucinations. I’m hallucinating right now as I write this. Luckily, the hallucinations aren’t quite as intense so as to prevent me from perceiving and interacting with the real world. My next appointment with my therapist is next month and with my psychiatrist is in July. As I write this I’m seeing apparitions and hearing voices commenting on what I’m writing ...

Denial and accepting/facing harsh truths

What's name for condition where people refuse (either unable or unwilling) to accept the truth/facts, when it is something they don't like or want to be true. And instead just ignore it or lookaway (as if it will somehow change the truth/FACT, when it won't.)

For example: hypothetically speaking, let's say that we find out for a FACT (that we can prove using science) that if you live a happy life, you go to Hell. ...

Are you feeling the spring spirit?

I always love spring. There's something about it that lifts up my mood, and maybe somehow, makes me less depressed. I used to go outdoors or if I can't, I'd be in the year writing or listening to music. I don't feel quite a bit normal this time. How about you? Do you feel the spring spirit? What activities are you doing?

Mentally ill but having a successful life?

Has anyone with unable to work due to mental health issues ever eventually recovered and gone on to have a successful life and career?

Is this even possible?

I am looking for examples of regular people, rather than celebrities, as being a millionaire superstar is unrealistic and unobtainable for a lot of people so I’m looking for more realistic examples,

Thanks

I think I’m dead, in the afterlife

I haven’t felt this way before. Tw for mentions of physical illness and, well, death and unreality

I have DID and at first I thought that’s what it was, the symptoms. It’s just, everyone around me keeps appearing as “fake” or “real” or “like me (in the sense of also being dead)”. It’s likely dissociation but it keeps coming back and bothering us. Memories worse than usual, honestly everything’s just been wrong and off for ...

need help with abusive neighbor

I need help with the upstairs tenant, a large, malicious and vindictive homosexual, and his boy friend (whom I'd probably get along with under different circumstances).

My background:
I'm an older male with PTSD from childhood trauma. I'm a recovered alcoholic with almost ten years of sobriety (meaning I haven't had even a sip of alcohol in almost ten years). I've been without a single family member for over ten years but, considering the family ...
